ceiling as a tool of negotiation. that violates. >> bill: we have a frightening amount of debt now. $16.5 trillion. and i gave you the stats up top about president obama's spending more than every other president combined. so that it's a different situation than it was under ronald reagan. now, i understand that the president can't order congress to raise the debt. he can't do that by any order. buff he can ignore it it he can -- don't worry about it keep paying stuff off. is that true? is that what he can do? >> well, that's roughly the case. i mean, they have tried to find other solutions. you have heard about mint the coin operation? >> bill: what is the trillion-dollar coin? what is that all about? >> it's a loophole if you will in federal law. the government is not allowed to print money, new money to pay its debts. but there is is a provision for platinum coins, specifically only for plat mum coins that allows the secretary of the treasury to issue platinum coins in any size, any denomination. >> bill: who is going to take the trillion-dollar coin? nobody. if he does that then you
network that's what we concentrate on my network and show. >> bill: let's take the debt ceiling which we just talked about. we owe $16.5 trillion. all right? obviously any intelligent person knows if we keep going this way the u.s. dollar is going to collapse which is why you demand to be paid in gold. >> i don't but that's not a bad idea. >> bill: libertarian say we don't want any paper money anymore? what do you want? >> i can't speak for the libertarian. >> bill: you said you are a libertarian. >> i am. i can speak for me as a libertarian. that is a very wide platform. for me, stop spending. cut the size of the government. go into reason. you were talking about this new coin. are you out of your mind? >> bill: they are not going to do that. >> bill, the fact that they are even debating it shows you how far from reality they really are. >> bill: that's probably on the current tv network which i want to get into now. [ laughter ] beck, did you make a dopey offer to any network? >> we debated back and forth. i think it was worth half of what they paid. so we debated back and forth so we
the board cuts passed in august of 2011 in order to pass the last debt ceiling bill. and apparently people thought it was okay to turn that off going into this year, but unfortunately it's turned off for two months and we're right back about in the soup with another debt ceiling deal. how are we ever going to get out of this conundrum if we don't at some point start paying the money we promised to pay. >> you just said something. how are we going to get out of this conundrum. according to an op-ed by mr. stephen moore, the president doesn't believe there's a problem. do you believe that the material in that op-ed is correct? do you think in your opinion that the government believes the president specifically doesn't believe we have a spending problem? >> the president does need to wake up and assess his surroundings. we are fixing to have the inauguration in a week or so. the debt will stand at a little other 16 trillion. by the time the next permit is inaugurated, the national debt will be $22 trillion. who cannot say there's a serious problem with being awash in red ink, and it threatens
to get rid of reoccurring debt ceiling votes. and on the issue of obama's white guy problem cybercity says yes bill. pote us has a gender and diversity problem. women are better negotiators. rhonda says always good to get up in san francisco to see the sexy ass michael tomasky on the tube. bill, have him on more often. >> bill: oh, my god. >> hey, ladies. >> why are we so surprised here? >> bill, you get this sometimes. >> bill: i was expecting her to say always nice to get up early in san francisco to see the sexy ass bill press. >> sexy ass michael tomasky. >> bill: she meant to say both. >> i'm not so sure. >> bill: now you know why we have you in. while we have your fan club here, can we say hello to beverly in chicago. >> caller: how you doing? >> bill: okay. >> caller: this is straight to mr. press. i was listening to joe scarborough yesterday morning for the first 30 minutes. >> bill: big mistake. >> caller: rambling on about the president having all white boys in his cabinet and no women. now i understand why he is saying it because all he's trying to do is get some -- [ bleep
are not debts to which the debt ceiling applies. and the idea is to recognize if we don't have enough money to pay those day-to-day obligations that the federal government should issue ious to people. it would say we're very sorry, yes, we owe you money, can't pay you now, when we can, we will. and then the fun part of the idea is that instead of the treasury trying to raise money through a back door mechanism like the platinum coin people would take these ious and tell them at a small discount, and that gets cash to most people's hands and at the same time it is less of a constitutional front to the congress. >> jennifer: so the notion would be that the -- so everybody who is a contractor with the government who is owed some money would be given some kind of paper. they could take that paper to the bank, and the bank would somehow buy it on the assumption that the bank believes that this will be resolved at some point because of the history of the united states. so the question is ed this sort of hand -- this did happen in california. when people compare california i
